Transcript of The Ascom Solution Lifecycle Plan. Protect your investment

Protect your investment. Optimize its performance.
Your Ascom solution is up and running. An Ascom Solution Lifecycle Plan will keep it that way.
With an Ascom Solution Lifecycle Plan (SLP) your organization gains a customized after-sales service and support package; with cost predictability, response guarantees, and dedicated staff and technical resources.
Maximize the uptime and performance of your Ascom solution
Based upon a wide range of modules, an Ascom Solution Lifecycle Plan (SLP) can be tailored to match your system’s role, importance and complexity. And because it’s modular, the SLP can be adapted to match your solution as it develops over time.
The exact configuration of an SLP depends on your solution, and your organization’s operational and budgetary goals. But Ascom experts are there to help you design the best possible SLP—one that delivers price clarity, maximum system uptime and peace of mind.
All service packages, regardless of level, include ‘certified interoperability’ for your Ascom solution. This guarantees that
Ideal for non-critical systems, the Bronze SLP guarantees helpdesk access, response times and engineer availability in line with your SLA.
Helpdesk access… A Bronze SLP gives you prioritized access to our helpdesk when making support calls and reporting errors.
Software Maintenance Agreement… Ensures you smooth access to the latest software updates and upgrades.
Remote access… We can establish a remote access channel to your solution–enabling troubleshooting and issue resolution without incurring the travel costs involved with on-site visits.
Free return shipping… There is no additional cost for the return shipping of repaired equipment.

Ascom systems work trouble-free with specified components from other vendors—significantly reducing the amount of interoperability testing you need to perform.
Enhance your SLP by adding:
Preventive maintenance… Benefit from scheduled main- tenance visits or remote analysis of your Ascom solution. You then receive a report recomending how to optimize solution performance.
Remote monitoring… Ascom technicians can identify and resolve issues before you even notice performance anomalies. Monitoring is via the remote access channel available with all Ascom SLPs.

Remote support… A Silver SLP includes all hours spent on remote support. Such remote intervention can help ensure speedy resolution of issues, and streamlines administration.

A Gold SLP provides comprehensive maintenance cost control. It provides all the services offered in Bronze and Silver SLPs, and adds:
On-site support… A Gold SLP covers site visits by Ascom service technicians, and includes work hours and material costs.
Prioritized repair… We guarantee a maximum turn around of two working days for all repaired handsets.
Prioritized delivery… Spare parts, replacement handsets and mission-critical hardware are express shipped to all Gold SLP customers. For critical parts, we maintain depots close to customers’ facilities.
Accidental damage coverage… We ensure your organization always has fully functioning Ascom handsets by guaranteeing cost-free repair/replace- ment of accidentally damaged units.
